You know the system is rigged when rich people scam to get their kids into college. The ironies abound.
First, Leftists claim to want “fairness” for the peons. Yet here we have two haute progressives unleveling the playing field for kids of the wealthy.
Second, why are these women not playing fair? Because the very system they created now dictates that white kids with better scores don’t get into college because some undeserving minority kid gets that slot.
Third, our education system is the most openly elitist in the world. Yet the Left say nothing about this classist, even racist system.
We all know that Harvard (or other Ivy League school) is better than [Whatever State U]…period. Nobody “oos and ahs” over a graduate of a state college or university. But say your kid graduated from Harvard or Wharton, and you get that look of admiration and approval. So the idea that elitists now fight to get their kids into elite schools cracks me up.
There exist many other ironies and hypocrisies, but let’s get to the story of these two Hollywood women who dared to buck the system.
The idea that with all their money and fame, Hollywood elitist still want a leg up on the “ordinary” kids, shows just how extraordinary our kids are.
As CNN reported,
Actresses Felicity Huffman and Lori Loughlin are among dozens of parents, sports coaches and college prep executives accused of carrying out a national conspiracy to get students into prestigious colleges, according to a massive federal indictment.
The purpose of the alleged scam was to help student athletes get into college as recruited athletes, regardless of their athletic ability, according to the indictment. It alleges that a third party took the ACT and SAT college entrance exams in place of students. The documents also allege that some defendants created fake athletic profiles for students to make them appear to be successful athletes and get them into college.
Athletic coaches from Yale, Stanford, USC, Wake Forest and Georgetown, among others, are implicated as well as parents and exam administrators, federal prosecutors said.
Huffman, an Academy Award nominee, has been charged with felony conspiracy to commit mail fraud and honest services mail fraud, according to court paperwork filed Monday in federal court in Massachusetts. A law enforcement source confirms to CNN that the actress has been arrested in Los Angeles.
Loughlin, star of “Full House” and “Fuller House,” also is facing the same felony charge — conspiracy to commit mail fraud and honest services mail fraud.
Holy Mother of Jussie Smollett, look at the people involved? And not a Nigerian in sight.
Coaches, parents, exam administrators all involved in the scheme. If only they could BLAME TRUMP!
Sadly for the Left, this scheme doesn’t involve Trump University. Instead it involves Yale, Stanford, USC, and so on. Good schools, supposedly. Correction: good WHITE schools.
And you know the NAACP won’t be far behind with ringing the money bell. They will find black plaintiffs who didn’t make it into these colleges and blame this scheme on these two white women. Then these black Leftists will feast on the carcasses of these white Leftists.
Then we will find out that black elitists were involved in the scheme as well. Thus, more death-spiraling Leftism for the world to see.
Back to the plot
Fake athletic profiles, fake test scores. Sounds like Hollywood to me. But it also sounds like Leftism.
Fake news, fake investigations, fake “Indians”, fake blacks, fake outrage. Fake defines Leftism, so what’s the big deal.
I love that this scandal broke during the Trump administration. Because how could Obama possibly expose this scandal?
Obama loves Hollywood, obviously more than he loves black people. After all, a scam like this undoubtedly helps whites and hurts blacks. Haven’t whites had enough of the system of empowerment, according to Obama and his ilk? Yet, Obama’s justice system didn’t vet out this corruption.
Perhaps now is the time for somebody to remind America the schools where Melia and Sasha attended and will eventually attend. Let’s just note that these two black girls won’t be attending Historically Black Colleges and Universities.
This list of conspirators is a long as the list of starlets who have been jacked up on Weinstein’s casting couch. And like in the Weinstein case, I don’t expect much to happen. A few public service announcements and a couple of college scholarships for a few inner city black kids, and all is well in Leftville.
